Android 6.0 is live for Nexus devices - well at least if you know what you are doing. Google on Monday released the factory images of the latest version of its mobile operating system for a handful of Nexus devices - Nexus 6, Nexus 5, Nexus 9 Wi-Fi, Nexus 9 Cellular, Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi, Nexus 7 (2013) Cellular, and Nexus Player.
As you might be familiar, these factory images would require you to flash your device (manually install the software update), and you will need to follow simple instructions.

If you're not comfortable with manually installing the update, sit patiently as the company does have plans to roll out the update over-the-air (OTA) starting this week. But history suggests that it would be a gradual seeding, so it might take a while before it becomes available for your handset.
What about your flashy HTC, LG, and Motorola smartphones? When are they getting the latest flavour of Android? The good news is that all of these manufacturers are already working on the update and have confirmed that they will be rolling out the update in coming weeks.
